While looking for a birthday gift for Martha at a local jewelry store, Clark intervenes when two thieves try to rob the place using the powerful scream of Nathan Dean (Micah Alberti), a meteor-rock mutant with the ability to project ear-splitting screams. The combination of the scream with a bijouterie of kryptonite deflecting Clark's heat vision back to his face makes Clark blind. Without this sense, his hearing uncontrollably increases. One of the criminals, Masterson (William MacDonald) is arrested. Nathan kidnaps Pete to force his mother, Judge Abigail Ross (Felecia M. Bell), to release Masterson. Meanwhile, the blind Clark listens to a phone conversation between Chloe and Lionel Luthor about Lex and himself. After Clark informs Lex about his father's intentions for them, Chloe is mistakenly taken as Lex's informer and she gets fired from her intern job at the Daily Planet by Lionel. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Did You Know?


While most of filming and exterior shots of buildings were primarily done around the Vancouver area, the exterior shot of the Smallville courthouse is actually of the Massachusetts State House in Boston, Massachusetts. This may have been shot specifically for this episode, or it may have been stock footage from Warner Brothers. See more »


Glasses aren't made right away at the doctors office. The prescription is sent out to a lab where they cut the lenses and it takes several days. See more »


Lana Lang: So, I got a letter from the insurance carrier. Apparently my entire medical bill has been taken care of?
Lex Luthor: Well, who said all insurance companies are evil? Look, it wasn't your fault, Lana. It was mine. I pushed you into the stall; that spooked the horse.
Lana Lang: Lex, you were...
Lex Luthor: Crazy?
Lana Lang: Not yourself.
Lex Luthor: Semantics aside, you get caught in the crossfire trying to help me. And for that, I'm truly sorry.
Lana Lang: As much as I appreciate the grand gestures, you could have just stopped by the Talon and said hello.
Lex Luthor: Yeah, ...

3x10 - Rewatch (Clark-centric)
21 July 2016 | by DCSassyQueenSee all my reviews

Clark gains the ability to hear from a distance. Clark's & Lex's friendship deepens. Clark's & Lana's "friendship" takes a turn for the worse, but when is it not going downhill. It is tiring because every time either of them wants the other... the other person is not ready. Ugh.

Clark finds out that Chloe was in cahoots with Lionel Luthor to find out information about Clark.

Clark's runs his big mouth so much. I am not a big fan of Chloe's, but damn he made her lose everything by running his mouth & he did not do a damn thing.
